Confound Linguist

take the dictionary to the compost pile 
introduce worms, birds, mushrooms 
let the dead leak back to earth 
corpses lost to murky soil 
rivers run with bones 

release us, because each was like the rest 
unteach spelling, rithmetic, grammar 
thank you death 
you didn't take anything 
when you washed away

may you be not replaced 
by starved sacred hunger 
for the absence of life 
is no lack;
(de)con(struck) embrace
